With WinterFest just around the corner, Monash Sport is excited to host Let It Glow, the finale the week long WinterFest.
On Friday 12 August, during week 3 of semester, Monash Sport will be transformed into a wonderland of light and colour. With rides, food trucks, and all sorts of entertainment, including a DJ pumping all the latest tunes, there is something fun for everyone.
Let It Glow will also see the opening of the new Monash Tan (running / walking track surrounding Monash Sport) with the Light Up the Night fun run/walk. In a sea of light and neon colour participants will be able to walk or run around the new track lined with colourful light, while also being decked out in glow sticks and neon paint themselves.
For the kids, and even the kids at heart, there is a kids entertainment zone which will see face painting, arts and crafts, and two feature movies played back to back on our big screen. In keeping with the theme of winter the movies will be Happy Feet and Ice Age, two great movies, not just for the kids.
Of course, what festival would be complete without the favourite show-stopping fireworks. At 7:30pm the night sky will come to life in spectacular fashion with a shower of light and colour in a breath-taking fireworks display.
Once the sky settles from its burst of light and colour, it is time for an action packed football game between featuring our very own Monash Blues against University High School-Victoria University Amateur Football Club (UHS-VU Afc) with the first bounce at 7:45pm on the oval next to all the festivities. This will be a spectacular game between two very good clubs, and will be a special one as it is the only game for these two teams to be played under lights.
So get the family together, get your friends together, and come and join us as we celebrate everything winter and light.
